The SEC and its commissioners should continue to work on a rule requiring political disclosure from public companies, in the interests of their shareholders. Businesses should not be empowered to use backdoor political channels like nonprofits or associations to do their political bidding, and shareholders have a right to know how executives are using company resources for political purposes — especially if those purposes are against shareholders' interests.

I believe part of the true anger and frustration in the electorate reflects the corporate indifference to the public. The SEC has the chance to change the political process being subverted for special interests.

If we as citizens are to believe our democracy does indeed work for all, this is a good start.
